I would have said if 10/29/77 was a hot bath I'd be super-pruned when I finally got out, but if the whole crack pipe dick sucking thing works for you, that's just grand.

perhaps my metaphor was a tad dickish...let's compromise, if 10-29-1977 was a big chocolate sheet cake, you'd be hitting it like a sorority girl that's just been dumped...

anyhew, there should be a 10-29-1977 grok if there hasn't been already...I'm giving it a spin this morning in fact...personally, it's really hard for me to pick out one definitive '77 show, it's hard to do a top five, 05-08-1977, 06-09-1977, 09-03-1977, 10-29-1977, then what? 02-26, 03-19, 05-07, 05-09, 05-25-1977, 06-07-1977, 10-02-1977, 11-05-1977, 12-29-1977...

I know--what a truly ridiculous year in terms of consistently EXCELLENT shows.

Just to make it even tougher I'd throw in 4/23/77 for the outstanding Scarlet>Fire, the amazing Help>Slip (and especially) Franklin's, and then the crazy-ass GDTR>NFA monster jam finish.

I like the sorority girl analogy, btw ;-)

Let me know when a 10/29/77 Grok is in the works.
